I am a little upset with the weather this week. We were enjoying beautiful fall days and then all of a sudden, BOOM. Winter decides to make an appearance. It is still October. I am not ready to see the white stuff falling from the sky. And I am especially not ready to drive in the snow and shovel the driveway. Ok, I really don’t shovel the driveway. Luckily, Josh loves the snow and takes care of that chore. I am still not happy though.
The only good thing about the snow is staying indoors and warming up with tasty food. I made a big pot of Vegetable Quinoa Soup and Cheddar Rosemary Corn Muffins. The Cheddar Rosemary Corn Muffins were the perfect side dish to our hearty soup.
I love making corn muffins because they are so easy. You don’t have to mess with yeast and they only take about 15 minutes to bake. Plus, you only need two bowls-one for the dry ingredients (Gold Medal flour, cornmeal, baking powder, etc.) and one for the liquid ingredients (buttermilk, eggs, oil, etc). Combine both and you have corn muffin batter from scratch in no time. No box mixes needed!
I did kick these corn muffins up a notch. I brought our rosemary in before it snowed and saw it sitting in the windowsill. I thought it would be a great addition to the corn muffins. I also shredded some white cheddar cheese to toss in. Suddenly, 15 minutes seemed like an eternity. I was soooo anxious to taste a corn muffin!
As soon as the muffins were done baking, I pulled one apart and gave Josh half. Caleb saw us eating the corn muffin and crawled over as fast as he could for a taste. I gave him a little bite and he loved it.
For dinner, we dunked the corn muffins in our soup. We all loved the Cheddar Rosemary Corn Muffins. I hope winter is short, but if I can eat these corn muffins all winter long, maybe I will survive:)
